This week I have been working on my head bands or head warmers for Peonie’s Closet. Did the photo shoot this morning for the head bands and took photos of my pyjama pants as well with my Model Lyndsay. So much nicer using a model! Head bands are great for outdoor activities or anyone who wants to make a fashion statement. Cool Montreal Canadians head gear or maybe you are a Batman fan! I try to do a little bit of everything for everyone.
Took some time out this weekend to decorate for all the Halloweener’s. I always try to do something that I can find around the house and it was really very inexpensive this year. If you put your mind to it and use your imagination, anything can happen. I first took a walk in the forest and gathered some old long branches that were lying around on the ground (money spent = FREE). I scavengered for the best looking and scariest ones. I am pretty lucky since I am right by a forest full of dead branches. But you can look right on your property, the park, just about anywhere and I am sure you can find some. Carrying them home (a 2 minute walk lol), I then planted them in some tall garden planters that I had around the house. I also filled them to the top with earth for stability. Once they were in the pots firmly, I began to decorate with the faux webbing (.99 cents at the dollar store for a bag with spiders and one bag goes a loooong way). I added some silhouette ghosts, some spiders here and there, a witches hat and Voila! A spooky halloween… I can’t wait for Halloween night muhahahhaha.
These are the pics in day-time. I will be carving out my pumpkins the morn of Halloween and will take a few shots at nightime to get that spooky eeeerie feeling.
The weather was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !! today. Was up early, 5:15am. Did the usual routine crap and then it was off for a bike ride at 7:00am, woohoo it was the perfect day for it. Cool temps this morning, just the way I like it for these kinds of activities, not to mention after the bike ride was stopping by the garden centre for bags of composted soil to start my small front yard rejuvenation. I posted some before pics of what the front area looks like as of now and I will post more pics when I am done doing whatever has to be done, LOL!
We started transplanting some “Greshem” and “Snowmound” bushes that had been planted about 5 years ago, oh geez they were a lot of work to get out and haul to their newly found places, but I am sure they will be more happy in their new spot. So after close to 6 hours of work and many scratches and cuts later, we got 5 bushes done out of 10, Oooops. Oh well guess Friday will be another day. Right now it’s time for some poolside activities, or should I say some lounging on the lounge chair with a “Hampton Peach Razz Delight” drink on ice.
Ahhhhh another glorious summer day and on CANADA DAY too! Woohooooooo that meant B-I-K-I-N-G!! Was incredibly hot in the sun, but in the shade of the woods it was amazing! I can’t believe this is right in my backyard, so tospeak. And it’s F-R-E-E! Am I lucky or what?! Brought along a nice french baguette…. ooohh the duckies are in for a treat!
Biking break at the dock (heehee)
QUACK QUACK! More bread please… And Make It Quick Already!! 😀
Last weekend I blogged about an amazing biking day we had and the some trail pathways that were being updated. I am updating with some photos’s of the finished trails and all new bridges. OMG! It’s gorgeous! We are having another great weekend here, the weather has just been great. Was kind of hot and muggy but once we entered the forest it was nice and cool. I have to say the work is completed here on the trails, and the bridges are all installed. Everything is soooooooooo nice! The trails are even better now! I just LOVE IT! I am so happy that this is all right out my front door… and it’s FREE!!!! How can anyone beat that! You have to take advantage of what nature brings you and I am definitely taking advantage. I am so happy I purchased my bike one year ago and I am able to do this. Get out, get active and have fun!! And did I mention it’s F-R-E-E !!
We took a break and had some refreshing yogurt raspberry ice cream, high on the raspberries…Delish!!
Had an amazing weekend! Went biking and I am so excited that they are refurbishing some of the bike trails and they are going to be FANTASTIC! I can’t wait for it to all be finished. Had to carry the bike over a some built and patiently waiting to be installed bridges… but it was so much fun, ahhh I love the forest! The smell, the views… just everything about it is breathtaking. Took some “BEFORE” shots and will post some “AFTER” shots as soon as I can.
Went for a small break at a dock and sunned myself (heeheehee). Noticed there were tons of Tadpoles, and they were HUGE, I don’t know what they have been eating…or maybe it’s something in the water! Hmmmmm
